J.K. Rowling Will Write a Movie Screenplay for First Time!

J.K. Rowling is set to write a screenplay for the first time ever for her upcoming project Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them!

The new franchise, a spinoff of the massive hit Harry Potter series, will be at least a trilogy with films releasing in 2016, 2018, 2020, and possibly beyond.

Jo has a vision for this extension of the franchise, and for the first time, she is writing the script for what she believes is at least a trilogy,” Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara said at Time Warner’s investors conference (via the Los Angeles Times).

Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them is about a character named Newt Scamander, who was a Hufflepuff hero that studied magical creatures and wrote a fictional textbook that bears the franchise’s name.
